Not really a walk
Wouldn't mind a few old boys coming to jog my memory of it's layout
(last time I was there was about 57 years ago)

Anyone interested

Yesterday I went to the old Shaftesbury Boys club in Jackson St and saw workmen there and asked if I could have a look at the cellars there - they said ok then. Unfortunately I didn't have my camera or a torch (that was needed) and asked if I could come back another time with others from a local History site - us
They said come on this Monday morning as the owner would be there then and ask him.
Also asked a fellow in another part of the building for an explore
(The American Diner part and got an ok

Bummer - work had started there and while we were waiting for the owner to turn up(who did eventually and said not while they're working, but who did take my phone number just in case), we went into the diner/Titan gym part.
At least the girls got some exercise and a cup of tea.

Wow- that is strange. I took pics of Jongy/ Joe and TC/ Blue but you can't make them out through the dirty glass- or was it lens coz yours has turned out ok- from same place.

I did enjoy punching and kicking those bags- took me back to my karate days. Nice little visualisation exercise. x
